Mrs. Henry Heidman and son-in-law
and. daughter, Mi-, and Mrs. Dave
Ferguson, of Vancouver, were the
guests of Mrs. Wm, Walters on Friday
and Saturday. The visitors are old-
timers of Phoenix and they had a look
at-that-historic- town-before -returning
to'the coast.
Mr. and Mrs. L. Rosiers and daughter had a miraculous escape in a auto
accident near Wallace, Idaho, a few
days ago. They were returning to
Montana from a visit with friends in
Greenwood, when a"'large touring car
ran into them with.the result that the
Rosiers family had to spend a couple
of days in the Wallace Hospital
Bob Cuthbertson,' Jim' Cuthbertson,
Jr., Miss Elizabeth Cuthbertson and
Miss Harris, of Vancouver, were vist-
ors in town on Tuesday and Wednesday. The party are on a .motor tour,
leaving Vancouver they travelled to
Seattle, thence to Nelson and Greenwood and continued their journey
westward from here to Blakeburn.
The Cuthbertsons took a look at
Mother Lode where they lived 'with
their parents, Mr. and Mrs. James
Cuthbertson,  during the boom  days.
Wm. Hatton, of Bridesville Road,
met with a painful accident on Thursday evening last, Mr. Hatton fell
from a load of hay, and in putting out
his hand to save himself he had his
left thumb fractured when it came in
contact with the ground. His face
was also cut on the right side. He received medical treatment for the injuries at Greenwood. It is unfortunate that Mr. Hatbn is laid up at this
time of the year, when the crops have
to be harvested. He has over 200,acres
in hay and grain.
On Saturday night the Picture Show
was interspersed with a decidedly interesting program, but the. public was
alive to the situation. It is over a year
since such a' crowd attended a show
of this kind. The musical numbers
added materially to the enjoyment of
the public who demanded many encores. Those taking part in the program were Nellie Wren, the Misses
Scott, Geo. Clark and the Greenwood
Orchestra. The former received an
ovation for the artistic manner in
which she rendered her songs. She
was accompanied by Mrs A. Walker.
Many people who have" lived in this
district have gone out and made a
name for themselves." This certainly
applies to Nellie Wren and Geo. Clark
who have become features in the
musical world of San Francisco.

The Motoring Age
J. P. C. Wright and family now of
Grand Forks, formerly of Greenwood, ���
passed through town a few days ago
on his return from the Coast.
Mi". Wright is very enthusiastic over
the scenery in the Fraser Canyon '
and says he found the road in very
good condition considering the length
of time it has been in operation. A
large crew", is working on the Lytton--
Spences Bridge cut-off. This will be
completed by fall and will shorten the
trip to the Coast by one hundred
miles.
Already many American tourists are
availing themselves of the circle tour
up the Fraser and down the Okanagan.
Across the line a very popular way of
travelling is in big busses. They will
probably make their appearance up
the Fraser before long. In some cases
long distances are travelled in this
way.-' Through bus lines operate from
Seattle to San Francisco, a distance of
nearly 1000 miles. The trip is made in
two days and a night. The most enthusiastic motorist should get his fill
of travelling on a trip of that kind.
At no distant date we may see the
big busses operating from here to the
Coast which would make a very pleasant way of travelling.
Garage Opened    ^
Percy Hammerstrom, of Nelson,
formerly of Midway, has opened a
Garage in the Kinney building, Greenwood. Mr. Hammerstrom is prepared
to do all kinds of repair work to cars.

Tlie Higli Cost of Weeds
Actual evidence of tho loss in valuo of weed-ml'estcd farm land is
shown in au extract from tho report of au inspector valuing a certain _far.m
for loaning purposes, in his report, tills inspector says: "It. lri badly infested
whh sow thiailc���as aro all the farms ih the neighborhood. I have valued
��1,000 less than 1 would if clean of this weed."
This .��1,000 represented 12 per eent. of the value ot the farm. Many
Inspectors would havc discounted the value to au even greater extent.
The dues lion naturally suggests Itself: What, Mr. Farmer, is your weed
ciop costing you?
You may not be contemplating a sale of the land, nor considering tho
placing of a loan on it. For the time being the actual value of the land may
he of no particular interest lo you. except lrom a taxation standpoint.
Nevertheless, llie question is/ none the less pertinent: What ls your weed
crop costing you?   ���
If you aio using dirty seed, it is costing you something for seeding i

DAN M. JOHNSON
Dan. M. Johnson, manager of lhe
Department of Colonization and
Agriculture, CaiiAdian National Hail-
ways, for western Canada, is leaving
on an extended trip to Europe. The
purpose of his journey is to confer
with Canadian National representative., in the various countries of
Europe to solve immigration problems and make plans for the 192S
movement of settlers to Canada'. Mr.
Johnson will visit London, Liverpool
and Glasgow, and Copenhagen, -Oslo,
Gothenburg, Rotterdam, Danzig, Warsaw, Vienna, Buda-Pe?.th and  Paris.
Immigrants Pouring In
Population  Being   Increased at Rate
of One Thousand a Day
Immigration to Canada in the month
of May this year totalled 23.941, according to a statement issued by the
department of immigration and colonisation. This is an increase of 29
per cent, over May, 1926, when the
lotal immigration to Canada was 18,-
620; and 79 per cent, over May, 1925,
when the total imigralion to Canada
foi^ that monh was  13,338, -    '
Last May there were 8,408 British
came to Canada; 2,503 from-lho United Slates and .13.030 from other countries, as compared with 7,986 British;
2,003 from the United Stales and 851
from.3othcr countries ln May, 1926.
Immigration for April and .May of
this year totalled 59,382 or almost
1,000 persons por day for the two
months.
In May of this year 5,561 Canadians,
who liad gone to tho United States
Intending (o romain there permanently returned to Canada declaring their
Intention of staying in tlio Dominion.
These arc uot Included in he immigration figures.
however, lhal yeai  by year lho woods will bosomc more inu<_or<_us and lhe
grain smaller and sm-i.loi.
you will discover that a weed-bile-Hod larm invites tew buyer-? hnd a low
price. Furthermore, it is safe, to predict that if you continue to grow"weeds,
and thereby automatically reduce your grain \icld, tho time is coming when
you will be loicod to apply to a Company for a loan. Then Sir. Inspector
will icport that he values your land at from 10 tc 20 per cent, less than ho
otherwise would if it  bad. been iree of weeds.
Thc most expensive and the least lerauncralive crop any farmer can
raise is a cro-ji of woods, yot thousands of Western farmors are engaged in
this losing business. Why? Because they have nnvcr lakon the time to
reckon up the cost, or boceuso of .slr.rilcssnoss, 'or downright laziness.
Pos_ibly Ignorance is iho cause, lho farmer failing lo realize thai allowing
weeds to grow and flourish on his land n>earns just as .much work for himself
Jn_the_long run as is involved in fighting them, while the cost of growing
weeds,is many times grealer than the cost ol eradicating them.       [
And if tho cost.am', loss to tho individual farmer is so great. It is, in thc
aggregate, to the muulcip.ilily, the province, and tlie Dominion so enormous
as to stagger lhe imagination.
Fight woods as yon would fight fire    Fight even    harder, because you
can insure properly against lire, but not against weeds.   The only insurance
* against weeds must be provided by yonr own labor. It will prove one of the
besl paying of all your faim efforts.

Patrol Sea For Icebergs
Floating Ice Is No More a Menaca To
Vessels
Up lo the time of Lhe sinking of
the Titanic on April 1-1, 1924, ice was
the greatest dread of the seagoer,
whether on the bridge or in tho cabin.
There was 'no means o'f estimating
the drift of, tho blue and white
crags whirh came floating down
from Greenland, diminishing in she
but not in potential des'triicliveness,
(ill they nieMod in the warm waters
of the Gulf Stream. The terrible
disaster to iho newest of ocean liners
awoke the whole world to the danger ot ice. .The United Slates took
the lead in 1913 by assigning two
cruisers, afterwards replaced by the
cutters' Seneca and Miami, to ice
���pairol duty, on lho waters of the
North AiRutlc. Tu the autumn of
thai yoar. afl"r, an international conference, the prlncipnj powers agreed
to share in 1 he expense of the pat-
rol.- 's     ^    '

keep the moving ice under observation froni' the northernmost ship lane
southward, reporting lo other vessels by racMo twice daily, with special radios when new bergs arc. discovered. Liners observing Ice repoit

all- tho regular ro'utes of sea travel
on the North Atlantic a menace more
deadly than storm, andrfog. No means

In tho reception accorded King
George and Queen^ Mary when they
drove through the East End of London recently, on the thirty-fourth anniversary of their wedding, Is to bo
seen the most conclusive answer to
those who would have thc world believe that the British nation is tired
of its limited monarchy, King Georgo
is today more popular than ever before, "and his Consort also enjoys the

bofji the Ki*ijg and Queen have taken

Following the most popular- monarch who ever sat upon a throne in
modern times, King George, always

difficulty of which was very little appreciated at the beginning , of his

-Conflict O^er Skirt Lengths
Movement Is On In, Europe To Introduce Longer Skirts
' "'While America has accepted with
complaisance current fashions in women's clothes both on the street and
on the beaches, tliQ.ro��� seems lo be
some agitation in Europe as to. the
moral significance of skirt lengths
and bathing suits," reads an editorial
in Tlie Outlook.
''Recently one faction of the Queen
Louise Association in Geraiauy declared that short skirls wero a sign
or moral degeneracy and. began a
campaign for long skirts," The Outlook editorial continues. "For some
reason, it developed into a rmal
versus in ban conflict, and the women
of Berlin banded together in defense
of prevailing fashions. On another
front wo find Italian women protesting against current brevities and carrying their campaign to an insistence
upon skirts below the shoe-fops for
all Kalian girls. In some districts
die movement for dress reform has
met with considerable success. In
Bologna children with short .skirts
aro barred from the schools, whin.-
throughout Italy stricter regulations'"
aro in 'force for modesty on tin-
beaches.
"But it is in 'Turkey that tho most
drastic movement is under way. Numbers of Moslem 'women are supporting a campaign for a uniform dress
.for all women. '" Extravagance and
feminine jealousy are tlie evils this
movement-fights, rather than moral
degeneracy, and iis progrnm Is for
the adoption of some universal costume, neat but not gaudy., Perhaps
this _ would'solve many problems, but
we somehow doubt the success o'f the
movement, Women will' dress pretty
much as they desire despite all attempts at reform or standardization;
aud we .may safely leave even skirt
lengths and bathing-suits to their own
sense of propriety."   -

Arthur Denman, of Vancouver, a retired C.P.R. engineer of the Boundary

A grass fire started near Mrs. L
Powers Restaurant on Friday afternoon. The blaze was noticed by Mrs.
Powers who gave the alarm which
brought many willing helpers to extinguish it, Had it gotten out of control it could have done great damage.
In the evening grass around the principal buildings in town was burned as
a precaution in case another fire should
start. The grass on the flat is very
dry at present and it is considered a
hazard.
No Necessity
A certain young lady about to be
married decided to test her youthful
sweetheart, and with this object in
view, called on a girl friend.
"I want you to go for a walk with
Wallace," she confided, and "at a suitable moment ask him for a kiss.'     '
Her friend blushed-but consented.
The following day the bride-to-be
called round to see what had happened.
"Did you ask Wallace to kiss, you,
dear?" she asked.
"I didn't get a chance," was the
rather upsetting reply. "He asked me
long before I thought of it,"
